OH. MY. GODDDD. Let me just say, this iced coffee recipe is so good that you’ll be saving your $9 at Starbucks once you make this.
I also want to preface by saying I was never into iced coffee until recently. I love my hot cup of coffee in the mornings. My hot cup made me feel like I was still in my cozy bed. But since becoming a mom, I realized that my hot cup of coffee was getting cold very quickly. LOL. I kept leaving my cup everywhere around the house and forgetting about it. And by the time I would get to it, it was cold…
So, I thought about getting into iced coffee. And boy oh boy!! This VERY simple recipe is kind of a game-changer. It’s creamy, frothy, cinnamon-y, hazelnut-y, and just sooo good.
Also, before I had Lemon, we got a Nespresso machine. Everyone was recommending we get one, so we did. A lot of you on Instagram raved about how good the coffee was and I finally caved when a couple of our friends wouldn’t stop talking about how good the coffee was. And they were not wrong.
We also ended up getting the Aeroccino frother from Nespresso. Again, SO many of you recommended this for frothing up milks.
Okay, let’s get into this recipe:
THE ICED COFFEE RECIPE OF YOUR DREAMS.
Those are your ingredients. Now, I’m not saying you need the Nespresso Aeroccino, but it’s AH-MAZING and just blends everything really well together. It also has a cold and hot option so if you want your milk cold, you can choose that.
Step 1: Crush up some ice. I (I think I need an ice machine asap)
Step 2: Make your espresso. I use the Chiaro Double Espresso from Nespresso. This has been my go-to lately. It’s woody and strong.
Step 3: Pour your espresso over the crushed ice.
Step 4: In your Aeroccino, add a tiny amount of hazelnut syrup, some Silk hazelnut creamer, and top it off with Earth’s Own oat milk. Oh and a dash of cinnamon. Blend that all together. If you’re using a hand frother, then add all these ingredients to your coffee mug and blend.
Step 5: Pour this delicious blend over your iced espresso, and enjoy. (Preferably in silence with no baby crying in the background)
Guysss, I have been addicted to this iced coffee recipe for a hot minute now! And it’s just fitting my “mom lifestyle” a bit better these days. You can also totally do this hot as well. It’s delicious. But, there’s something SO GOOD about it being iced. Maybe it’s the warmer weather that we’re having?
Anyway, let’s talk about the Nespresso Vertuo Next machine for a second. BTW, this post is not sponsored in anyway. I’m not being paid to talk about this machine. I was sent the coffee machine, however, I’m sharing this because many of you asked for a review on the Nespresso machine, and you know I love to share a good find.
This is a good machine! I was very hesitant about it before getting this. You guys know I love my De’Longhi All-in-One machine, and have been using it for years. It made great coffee and espresso. The only thing about the De’Longhi machine was the size. It’s huge, and takes up a huge footprint on my counter. The Nespresso machines are nice and compact. It took us a few weeks to really get the hang of using the machine, finding out what what coffee flavours we liked, etc. Once we did though…DAMN. We are hooked. Nespresso coffees are like being a part of an elite members group. It’s super fun to choose your coffees online, taste different ones, discuss it (LOL), order more, and play around with different ways to make your coffees.
Which is where the Aeroccino frother comes in. I LOVE THIS THING. It’s so easy to use and makes the creamiest of coffees. You can make lattés, frappés, cappuccinos, whatever your little coffee-drinking heart desires.
Okay, that’s my rant on coffees. You guys have to try this ice-coffee recipe and let me know what you think! I’m obsessed and can’t stop drinking it.
Also, curious to know how you guys like your coffees? Iced or hot? LMK in the comments.
